When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

Here comes the rage......

£3k is VERY strong money, especially given

1. It's an ES
2. It's an Auto
3. It's clearly in need of a service - Rusty oil filter! :shock:

Then there's this:
dreamer wrote:couple of bits of rust but only small. It has had a couple of small bumps on the bumpers that were repaired but the paint has started to bubble. The left window doesn't open via the electric motor
For 3k, it should be as near to flawless as possible; If I was in a tyre kicking mood, I'd be starting from a more realistic £2k top condition price, then it'd be £250 off for each bumper, £125 for the motor, £200 for a full service and rust.... well, depends where, but you're probably looking at £500 to play safe

More on it....

“There is a picture of the rear of the car. If you look just right near the bottom of the light you can see the small patch I mentioned. The one near the sill/wheel arch has been treated so you cant see it. I'm selling this for.my father in law so I'd have to go and get more photos.“

So rusting from the bottom of the lights eh? Wonder why that would be....

And sill/wheel arch rot...

For £3k.....

And it’s now back on eBay for 2.3k

Still very very strong money in my eyes
